Tejas Chipotle Pizza

“This quick and easy recipe was my winning entry in RSC #5. This dish is colorful and a southwest spin on pizza. It is very spicy with the chipotles and the jalapeño cheese. I served it with a green salad and simple dessert. Update: Since several reviewers were having trouble with the crust, I tried this again & agree that two cans of crescent rolls would be an improvement in order to not stretch the dough so thin. I have also made this on a pizza crust & into quesadillas and liked those options too. I hope you enjoy my spicy creation!”
